Thisara Perera guessed the right side of the coin and opted to field first. India will now look to post a mighty total on the board and then put pressure on the Sri Lankan batting unit in the second innings.
The Indore surface has always been hailed as a paradise for the batsmen, and with dew coming into play in the second innings, Sri Lanka will be hoping that they can chase down whatever Indian post on the board in the second innings.
The Indian team will be looking to seal the series tonight, and that is way Rohit has gone in with the same team that took field in the first T20 at Cuttack.
Sri Lanka though have gone in with two changes, bringing in Sadeera and Chaturanga in place of Vishwa and Dasun.
